GO BACK TO WEDNESDAY: They were going to announce they had someone under arrest!
EVERYONE JUST STOP. HOW IS THIS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT?
We have to go back to Wednesday and look at everything that led up to that "press conference" that never was, the courthouse frenzy.
They were ready to announce they had a suspect in custody, they had someone, and then everything BLEW UP from there.
There was a five hour period from when the announcement leaked at 12 noon CT up to 5pm CT. In that time, the entire plan got rearranged and a big frenzy took place at the courthouse, and then they denied that THEY HAD ANYONE AT ALL IN CUSTODY.
It went from "We have someone under arrest"
"We don't have anyone at all."
What the HELL happened here? They had somebody (singular) and they were ready to go, and the plan got changed.
